Avid Bookshop is a locally-owned, Athens, Georgia-based bookshop. The shop regularly holds events such as readings and signings, as well as workshops with authors. We promote each of our events through a variety of local publications such as Flagpole Magazine, the Athens Banner-Herald (both online and in print) and many more in our local area. Events are also posted on local listservs such as the Creative Writing listserv at the University of Georgia and local communications. Avid is a New York Times-reporting store. The shop is charmingly small, but we are able to accommodate larger events through partnerships with other venues, such as the Athens Regional Library and Georgia Center for the Book. We host more than 200 events every year. Here are some of the great things people have said about us!
